Winter is an untapped resource for most elementary teachers. Join us for a day in Kananaskis Country as we tromp about on snowshoes and ignite the joy of winter for you and your students. We'll play winter games, showcase how to provoke environmental inquiry, and discuss ways to bring the winter season alive, both in and out of your classroom. Come prepared to be outdoors, in a magical winter world, for the entire day. We’ll move at a slow to moderate pace but please be dressed for periods of standing and discussing. We'll also focus on creating a great outdoor wellness day, just for you, in the Rocky Mountains.

Dress for the weather – lots of layers, snowpants (or shells) and winter boots are essential.

Meet bus at Winsport parking lot infront of DayLodge, see map.

Bus Departs at 8:30 am, return by 3:30 pm.
